Babolat’s Special Wimbledon Gear Line For 2017
We haven’t even started on the French clay yet, but Babolat’s massive marketing machine rolls on towards London and this year’s Championships at Wimbledon. Let’s see what they’ve got for us. (No apparel like they had last year…yet.) There’s some French Open stuff in this video, but we’ve already covered that for ya.
This is the same frame as the regular Pure Drive, it just has a touch of Wimbledon cosmetics. It offers the kind of power, precision and mobility that should appeal to everyone from strong beginners to the professional ranks. Kind of curious why they went with shades of blue on this one, (the shoes and bags also use these colors) since the official tourney
colors colours are purple and green. If Wimbledon starts enforcing the “predominantly white” rule for racquets, expect a huge uproar. And then a lot of paint jobs. Get it here: TW/USA • TW/Europe
Babolat Jet Team AC Wimbledon White/Blue Men’s Shoes
Inspired by the Jet shoe, this Team version features a breathable mesh and Kevlar weave to provide support and comfort. The midsole offers ample cushioning and rebound allowing you to pick up speed right when you need to. The durable Michelin rubber outsole features an S-shaped pattern with ideal levels of traction.

Babolat Propulse AC Wimbledon White/Navy Men’s Shoes
I like these next styles a lot. Nice and clean on this first version. This limited edition Propulse All Court Wimbledon shoe has been made to provide aggressive players with all the support they need and celebrate the grass court major. The same shoe as the Propulse Fury, this shoe has been engineered to maximize stability, durability and comfort for the modern player. Babolat identified 9 key pressure points on the foot and uses Active Flexxion technology to provide cushioning, support and responsiveness to all those areas. In addition, the improved Michelin rubber compound is more resilient than ever before, allowing weight to be taken out of the outsole while still providing exceptional durability, even for those that are very hard on their shoes. The outsole is backed by a six month durability guarantee. Get it here: TW/USA • TW/Europe
Babolat Propulse AC Wimbledon Navy/White Men’s Shoes
Here’s another color scheme for the Propulse AC, with striking Wimbledon graphics. Mercy would I like a pair of these! (No extra wide widths, sadly.) Of course the AELTC won’t allow these on the court, (they wouldn’t even let The GOAT slide with orange soles one year, remember?) but fans in the stands will have no problems!
